Same here for me. I managed to get great deals with Best Buy online and Amazon online between Turkey Day and Black Friday, plus some others throughout the weekend with Amazon.

It's just not worth risking life and limb for some savings.


thirded on this.

Im going to be too stuffed and too sleepy from food comas. I got all the stuff i wanted last year online and hopefully the same begs for this year.

Can't wait for Black Friday insane online game shopping! Last year Amazon had a ton of great prices; this year I'm saving even more for the sales!

Last year, I bought all the DVDs and Blu-rays I wanted on Thanksgiving from Amazon when they PMed Beast Buy's and other ads, thus saving me from having to go out in the cold and dark, though I did go to Staple's, a mile from my g/f's house to get a few things. Went out in mid-afternoon and made Walmart match Game Crazy and Radio Shack ads for serious savings. I'm hoping to do this again this year.

Amazon was a beast last year there's no need to line up to any stores this time.

BEAST BUY :whee:

Money comes and goes, but deals don't last forever ;)


If anime was mainstream, would it be as satisfying?

Amazon usually price matches competitors all on their own to stay ultra competitive. They did a pretty good job of price matching Best Buy and Target and some other retailers B&M's last year when it came to video games and DVDs.

Yeah that's where I got my Legend of Zelda Triforce DS Lite. It was $10 or $20 (I forget now) cheaper than everywhere else. But that was such a crazy morning. Letting people in like 5 or 10 at a time as other people came out, so not to break fire code of too many people in the building. Madness. :roll:

Something will have to be extremely cheap for me to go through that again.

I'll try Online but going to an actual B&M to be surrounded by fucking idiots? No fucking thank you.

We don't need lots of threads for every vendor. Your thread has been merged into this one.

Man, I hope Amazon goes absolutely insane like they did last year. I dunno if the economy has come back enough for B&M stores to get back to 2005-2007 Black Friday craziness.

I gave up going to stores a couple years ago when I saw people sitting outside of Best Buy on the Wednesday morning before black friday.

Not great, but not too bad. Play N Trade is small and as such will not have earthshattering deals. But I expect the goods from Worst Buy this year, for an entire year of money-munching, terrible "deals". Same goes for Gamestop, and their terrible deals and coupons.

Check out @RealKrakrabbit - Twitter Page Full of News, Tidbits, etc., etc.

 

Also looking to make trades/sells to anyone who is interested. Check out my tradelist! :grouphug:

I'm keepin' an eye out on Best Buy, Gamestop, Amazon, etc. for a B2G1 so I can complete the trifecta of 360 FPS's this holiday season:

L4D2
CoD:MW2
H3:ODST

Some good ones I recall:

-Metal Gear Solid: The Essential Collection for $15
-No More Heroes for $15
-Animal Crossing for $30
-Animal Crossing w/Wii Speak for $40
-Shadow of the Colossus for $10
-Katamari Damacy for $5

And what turned out to be the greatest deal, IMO: Persona 3 FES with artbook and soundtrack CD for $20.

Many of the deals lasted through the whole weekend, and one or two of them may have been on other days around that time but not specifically Black Friday. It's hard to remember, there was a lot of good stuff.

I hope this isn't asking too much from the OP but can you include PC parts as they are added? Graphics card, CPU's etc. from places like Newegg, and I would be in your debt forever.

I'm not expecting too many great deals on games this year.

With CC closed, TRU gave GCs with almost every new release (which we ate up) and BB having Reward Zone discounts, Amazon's ridiculous credits and GC deals and all doing B2G1 free, those companies should be in pretty good shape for the year (and really don't need to slash game prices too bad to get us to buy them). Especially when so many titles like L4D2, MW2 and others are Day 1 purchases for gamers.

I expect the deals will be applied to other mediums (computers, tv, blu-rays, etc.). I think they might need to move some of that big plastic (RB, GH, DJH) taking up shelf space, so we might get some love there. I think our BF deals came early. I hope I'm wrong.

Besides Star Trek, when it comes to movies, they're is no such thing as a "re-imagining." Run. It's only going to be a crappy remake.

I would think GC are the best strategy to keep us rolling them over and the stores getting repeat business.
